** The Reapers vs. Earth. According to the Codex entry "The Fall of Earth", the Reapers conquer the planet in a matter of ''hours''. While escaping Earth, players will see that the previously enormous fleet that was gathered in orbit around Earth has been completely devastated, and we later learn that Arcturus Station (the Systems Alliances' capital) was destroyed, along with the ''entire'' Second Fleet. Many of the battles that directly involve Reapers turn into this. The batarians got steamrolled right at the beginning so quickly that many people don't even know what has happened to them until the Reapers are smashing through Earth's defenses. Thessia, home of the asari, falls. Indeed, only the turians, who have the most powerful military in the galaxy, manage to partly avoid this fate, turning the battle for their homeworld into a HopelessWar instead.

Indeed, only the turians, who have the most powerful military in the galaxy, manage to partly avoid this fate, turning the battle for their homeworld into a HopelessWar instead. The Krogans avert it almost entirely; in fact they can spare enough troops from the battle for their homeworld to send relief troops to the Turians. Of course, this might just be because they didn't have a real central government or infrastructure in the first place.



** CurbstompCushion: Every species who faced the Reapers mounting a full-scale invasion had their armies destroyed within hours and reduced to a planetary guerrilla force at best. The turians were able to hold out almost the entire rest of the game, and with the krogan backing them up, actually managed a major victory.

* BladeBelowTheElbow: The omni-blade is a super-heated carbon blade created by the user's omni-tool and held in place by mass effect fields. They make up the heavy melee attack for most single-player classes and several multiplayer classes.

** Paragon and Renegade interrupts were rebound from R2 and L2 to R1 and L1 in the PS3 version. Might cause you to miss one or two.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiRageQuitting: In multiplayer, players earn XP based on the points they score during a match, even if the group fails to complete its objective or doesn't make it to extraction. You don't get the XP if you leave early. Additionally, it's possible to promote max-level multiplayer characters to War Assets in the single player game, meaning that not rage quitting in multiplayer can actually help your single player campaign as well.

* AwesomeYetPractical: The M358 Talon pistol. It has most of the benefits of both pistols and shotguns with few of the drawbacks. It's a bit heavy for a pistol but still lighter than most shotguns. The damage and range are also excellent, especially with upgrades. If you don't have the weight capacity for a shotgun but want some insurance at close and possibly mid range, the Talon can be your best friend.

** Space battles show ships fighting at knife fight ranges using generally terrible tactics while spraying fire wildly, all in direct contradiction of everything the codex and characters say about space combat. WordOfGod is that the codex version is the canon one; [[MST3KMantra just enjoy the pretty explosions during cutscenes]].

* TheAbridgedSeries : ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbsVHYYaxwE Space Scumbag]]'' by ''Tyrannicon''. It follows a [[BoisterousBruiser loudmouthed]], homophobic, HeroicComedicSociopath iteriation of Shepard, named "TJ Lazer", and his quest to found a colony dedicated to [[SuperBreedingProgram breeding more people like him.]] Using himself as the father, of course.

*** ''Double'' Inverted though if Wreav is the krogan leader instead of Wrex. Although curing the genophage saves the krogan race, Wreav makes no secret that he intends to basically restart the Krogan Rebellions once the Reapers are dealt with, which would plunge the galaxy right into another bloody war.
